Oh crap

Want to see people die en masse?

A public health official in Laredo, Texas, said 20 Congolese migrants are being monitored for Ebola in shelters in his city and across the Mexican border in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. 
Shortly after his announcement during a Laredo City Council meeting, the World Health Organization (WHO) considered declaring a “global emergency” in response to a massive outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

You want to know how bad an ebola outbreak in American could be?  Go read this guy's take on it.  Ebola is scary shit, and if we allow it into this country because of our wide open borders, we won't have to worry about a civil war.  Huge chunks of cities will die.  Just...  die.  Horribly.

This ain't happy news.

Holy Saturday

We wait...

Diversity + Proximity = War

That's why E Pluribus Unum was so damned important, and it's why the Left is going to burn in hell for all eternity for destroying it.

For history's rare multiracial and multiethnic republics, an "e pluribus unum" cohesion is essential. Each particular tribe must owe greater allegiance to the commonwealth than to those who superficially look or worship alike. 
Yet over the last 20 years we have deprecated "unity" and championed "diversity." Americans are being urged by popular culture, universities, schools and government to emphasize their innate differences rather than their common similarities. 
Sometimes the strained effort turns comical. Some hyphenate or add accents or foreign pronunciations to their names. Others fabricate phony ethnic pedigrees in hopes of gaining an edge in job-seeking or admissions. 
The common theme is to be anything other than just normal Americans for whom race, gender and ethnicity are incidental rather than essential to their character.


Identity politics will be just one of the many knives that stab this country to death.  I don't see any way of turning the clock back on this one; we already have people entrenched in the belief that their skin color or country of origin are more important than being American.  Anyone who puts a nation and a hyphen in front of "American" is proudly proclaiming that they are not American.  And if they're not American, they don't share the same values that Americans share, that have allowed us to live in close proximity with each other for the past 242 years.

Why Illegal Aliens are ready-made Democrats

Scary shit, amigo.

It's not that its people are poorly educated, though that's a major issue, actually.  It's that a good look at that system shows that pretty much the only education they receive at all is Marxist indoctrination.  Combine that with sub-literacy, and the people who are the products of this system are as malleable as clay in the hands of leftist demagogues. 
How very convenient for the leftist political parties there that produce such people.  And how even more convenient for Democrats up north, waiting to welcome them as they flee.


Please go read just what kind of Marxist shitholes the schools in Central America are, and then realize that the Left in America wants the very same thing for this country.

During a recent teachers strike in this Zapotec Indian town in the poor southern state of Oaxaca, parents who brought in replacement instructors discovered that the children hadn't been taught the words to Mexico's national anthem.  Instead, they had been trained to sing a popular leftist song which acts as an unofficial anthem to a local chapter of the teachers union. 
"We don't know the words to the Mexican anthem," said Leticia Diego, a student, apologizing to a visitor one recent morning.  About a dozen seventh-graders then shyly sang the leftist anthem, "The People United Will Never Be Defeated."

Public Education is a scourge on this earth, a disease that infects whole societies and destroys them from within.

Ghosts of Mississippi

For the past week or so, I've been waking up at 0300.  Just destroying my REM sleep.  Don't know why.  Can't figure it out.  But it's playing hell on my workout schedule, when I can't drag myself out of bed in the morning.


Yep

This is why I don't give a shit about your college degree

Also, we are so screwed....




A free Republic requires moral, educated people to sustain it.  We do not have moral or educated people coming from our colleges and universities.

This is deliberate.  The Left, which controls academia, do not want educated, moral people.  They want amoral, easily controlled drones, and that's what they produce.

Deeds, not words

Why do I call the Left in America anti-American?  Because they show it through their actions.

Is there a classier lady anywhere than Shannon Slutman, widow of FDNY firefighter Christopher Slutman — killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistanwhile serving as a US Marine Corps reservist? 
No, there is not. 
Meanwhile, is there a bigger dope than Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, the pandering jerk from Greenwich Village who was hard-pressed to find a few bucks to help send Gold Star kids to college — while lavishing millions on scholarships for the offspring of New York’s legion of illegal, um, ­arrivers? 
Alas, probably.

My parents were big on telling us that in order to find out what people are like, watch what they do when they think nobody is looking.  My mom was fond of saying that the real person comes through when they're driving or playing sports.  In today's age, you have to look at what they say when they think that only their allies are listening.

Or blathering to their friends on twitter.

The Left in America hates America.  They hate our freedom, they hate our individualism, they hate our Western Civilization, they hate our Christian religion.  THEY HATE US.  THEY HATE YOU.

Vote accordingly.  But more importantly, buy ammo.  Buy guns.  Because this country will not live forever, and the rule of law doesn't matter to the Left.  They WILL come for you, sooner or later.  They always do, once they gain power.  And the GOP is so weak and spineless that they won't stand in the way of the Left once the Left gains power once again.

I would be willing to bet that the Notre Dame fire wasn't an accident.

Because it's not the first church fire of the year.  Or the month.  Or even the week.

A dozen Catholic churches have been desecrated across France over the period of one week in an egregious case of anti-Christian vandalism. 
The recent spate of church profanations has puzzled both police and ecclesiastical leaders, who have mostly remained silent as the violations have spread up and down France. 
Last Sunday, marauders set fire to the church of Saint-Sulpice — one of Paris’ largest and most important churches — shortly after the twelve-o’clock Mass.

France has imported millions of muslims over the past couple of decades, and surprising nobody with a brain, they've refused to assimilate.  Part of that is because European countries don't assimilate people into their nation very well at all, and part of it is because Islam is a backwards, 7th-century death cult who have spent centuries inbreeding their IQ down to retardation levels.

But we've had islamic sub-humans murdering priests, attacking Jews and vandalizing churches and jewish temples for years now.  We've had churches desecrated all over France.  We have Jews leaving France for fear of their lives.  We've had musloids rioting and burning cars in Paris on an annual basis. 

Do I have any proof that the Notre Dame fire was caused by musloids committing arson?  No, I don't.  But I wouldn't put it past them.  This is the same religion that blew up thousand-year-old carvings of Buddha in the name of their religion.  They've destroyed churches and Christian cemeteries all over the Middle East.  Does anyone think that they wouldn't burn down one of the most iconic cathedrals if they had a chance?

You know they would.  Everybody knows they would.

I personally do not believe that the Notre Dame fire was an accident.  And I certainly am not alone in this.  YMMV.

Notre Dame is burning

It saddens my heart. 

It's also a good metaphor for the Catholic Church in Europe.  Irreplaceable treasures going up in smoke.

Got a day at home today

That's what happens when an oak tree that's four feet across comes down on your building, knocking a hole in the roof, tearing a gash down the side of the building, and knocking out power.

Also - the work computer doesn't like civilian networks very much.  Go figure.

Tornado hit close to home

Luckily, all it took was the roof off of a store. 

We didn't even lose power.  Thank you, linesmen!

Ho-Lee-Crap Thunderstorms

We got a gully-washer kicking off right now.  I wonder if it'll keep the pollen down for a bit.

When I say "gully-washer", I mean the drainage ditch in front of our house, which is about 18 inches by 30 inches, is full, and more is coming in.  That ought to be interesting tomorrow morning, checking to see what roadways have been moved a tad.

The Allergy Season that Never Ends

Apparently, this is a really bad year for allergies in Mississippi.

I can't breathe.



Even the dog is having allergy problems right now.

A little more Mean Mary



Way back when I was a young buck, I helped play the "drums" for a recital.  I might just tell that later.

Thursday, April 11, 2019

Got a big boss man showing up today

So I get to lead him around and make sure that he gets taken care of.  Because I don't trust a damn senior person in that building to do it themselves. 

There's no ass-kissing, but I have to make sure he's in-processed, to include the money people and the computer people.  So I'm going to be rather busy today.

Apropos of nothing, if the people of East Lansing are so horrified about Catholics not celebrating teh gays, I can't wait to see what they think of their Muslim neighbors in Dearbornistan.  But it's almost like all the hatred only goes one way.  Huh.  Go figure.

Five Reasons to Build The Wall



I'm now at the point where I think that the wall will never truly get built, because the people in D.C. don't want it built.  At some point, the bloodshed that is occurring will make it to T.V., and then god knows what's going to happen.  As it is, I'm absolutely certain that there is a huge amount of "Shoot, Shovel, Shut Up" going on that never makes the nightly news.  If I had drug traffickers destroying my ranch land?  A night scope and a 30-06 takes care of quite a bit of problematic people.

Candice Owens just whipped Nadler and Lieu in person

Couldn't have happened to a worse couple of pathetic shitstains.





Nadler is a turd.  Lieu is a turd.  They are both a symptom of just how far down the drain America has gone. And of course, they're both Democrats.

And Ted Lieu deserves to be punched in the face on a daily basis for being such an unmitigated asshole.

Hack hack cough

It was a yellow alert day yesterday thanks to all the pollen in the air.  It'll be another yellow day today.  And that means that your humble narrator is hacking up chunks of lung-butter.

It's disgusting.  What's worse is that all this congestion eventually turns into an illness that puts me flat on my ass for a few days.

Grrrrrr.

I'll be the guy swigging Airborne like it's whiskey and I'm an old cowboy from the 1880's.

It's sad that this even needs to be said, but this is the world we live in

Being a Fatty McFatCakes is NOT a service related disability.  Senior officers/NCOs in the USAR and ARNG hardest hit.

Obesity cannot be considered a service-connected disability, according to a new ruling by the Department of Veterans Affairs General Counsel expected to be published in the April 8, 2019, edition of the Federal Register. The new ruling, among several precedent opinions set to be included, reinforces the VA's long-standing opinion that obesity isn't a disease or injury according to the law for wartime or peacetime compensation and can't be considered directly related to military service for compensation purposes. 

The number of people I've seen waddling up to the door of my unit, with their uniform stretched to the breaking point, makes me rather angry.  I actively work to either get the people I am responsible for to be A) in shape, or B) out of the Army if they can't put the fork down.

If you have an injury that prevents you from working out, then you should be getting compensation for that injury.  But if you're a fat-ass, and you can't be bothered to do a minimum of exercise, that's on YOU, not the Army.  I've been unable to run for the past six months thanks to a fractured sesamoid bone in my foot, but I've found other ways to exercise so that I don't get fat.  Getting fat is bad, m'kay?  Especially when the Army will kick you out for being fat, and I rather enjoy being able to see Mr. Happy when I look down.  Which is a total non sequitur, but it's still rather important to the Mrs.

While the VA treats obesity as a disease for which treatment is warranted, the distinction is in the words "service-connected." The VA simply does not see it as a condition that was a result of military service, and therefore for which compensation is payable. 

Oh yes, obesity is treatable.  Stop drinking beer.  Stop eating fried everything with fried sauces on top. 

When I was stationed in Wisconsin, I worked with another Soldier from Georgia who was so fat even his fingers were plump.  He did enjoy his fried chicken.  He retired sometime in 2012, and was dead from a massive heart attack by 2014.  He had probably gained another 50-100 pounds from his rather hefty retirement weight. 

I think he was 51 or so.

Put the fork down.  Eat an apple instead of a donut.  Cut down on the beer, like I did.  And I love beer, folks.  I really, really do like beer, but it makes me fat so out it went.  My diet has had to change multiple times depending on what it was doing to my body, and I figure that it'll change a couple more times once I retire and grow a beard and put up signs around my house saying "Trespassers will be shot; Survivors will be shot again".  But don't ever blame anyone else for you being fat.  If you're fat, it's because YOU made the choices that made you fat.  The VA shouldn't have to pay for that.

You want reparations?

Reparations for what?  I've never owned slaves, and there ain't a black man alive in America today who was forced to pick cotton.

Tell ya what - how's about we make a deal with this whole "reparations" thing.  Any black person who wants reparations can have them.  And they can get them just as soon as they give up their American citizenship, step on a plane, and go to any African country of their choice.  Go back to their motherland, if they're so caught up in their blackness and all that entails.  Hell, I'd be willing to put them on a boat just so they can carry more of their personal belongings, and drop them off on any country in Western Africa.  They get the cash, they get on the boat (a cargo boat, not a cruise ship), they leave and NEVER COME BACK.

Then, and only then, will I consider the possibility of reparations of acts that occurred prior to anyone in my family arriving on these shores.  Until then, they can all kiss my ass.

Stupid vile woman proves her stupidity and vileness (A post on Dr. Charlotte Riley)

So I go for this quote

During the twentieth century, Britain sank from being the world’s foremost power to a marginal colony of Brussels where you can go to jail over a Facebook post. The empire that ruled the seas is now an emasculated political basket case that seemingly cannot import invaders fast enough to satisfy its thirst for virtue signaling.  

And end up reading crap like this:

A few days ago, I was having a bad morning: my train tickets were expensive, my train was delayed, and my coffee was cold. But I cheered myself up by playing a game on my commute. The game is called Patriarchy Chicken, and the rules are simple: do not move out of the way for men.
(.......)
The point of Patriarchy Chicken is not just that you get where you’re going marginally faster (although you do) or that you irritate a number of men (which you also do). The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to occupy space takes precedent over anyone else’s right to be there. They spread their legs on tubes and trains, they bellow across coffee shops and guffaw in pubs, and they never, ever give way. 

Now, if you're reading that and thinking to yourself "My, it seems that this author is a Leftist douche-canoe who lives in order to make everything around her more miserable and more evil", you'd be correct.  She's a academic.  And "intellectual", even.

The fact that this stupid cow goes out of her way to ignore the basic norms for general civility ought to tell you all you need to know about her.  But it also shows that this academic turd blossom it absolutely full of shit as she rages about the men who keep her civilization running.  Men do not go out of their way to annoy people.  That's a good way to get a fist to the face.  The reason so many men get perplexed at this woman is that if it were another man, they would react accordingly.  But men are conditioned to treat women with respect, and when we see a female walking genital wart acting in such a fashion it throws us for a loop.  We can't punch her in the face, AND SHE KNOWS IT.

That's the rub, right there.  This is why this blithering sack of maggot vomit needs to be publicly humiliated:  Because she's protected by her vagina, and she knows it.  If she jabs her elbow into a man's ribs, she wins.  If he reacts in any way other than to mumble an apology and move on, she wins again.  And she knows it.  She rages about the patriarchy while simultaneously being protected by the same patriarchal rules she's raging against.

Dr. Charlotte Riley is the end result of a society that has decided to end it all and just slit its wrists open.  The corpse of formerly "Great" Britain is still twitching, but it's dead, Jim.  She's a human AIDS virus, destroying the body by destroying the immune system so that any small little virus will kill it off.

Huh. A good hard look at "social costs".

A long but interesting and very informative read, right here.

And this brings me back to the question of cost/benefit analyses and the idea of the “social benefit of carbon”. As noted above, people put the “social cost of carbon” (actually carbon dioxide) at “roughly $40 per ton”. 
Now, remember that corresponding to the “social cost of carbon”, the “social benefit of carbon” is: 
… the dollar value of the total benefits from emitting one ton of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 
As Figure 6 shows, the benefit that we get from emitting that additional tonne of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is an increase in goods and services of $4,380 … which dwarfs the assumed social cost of carbon of $40. When we do an actual cost/benefit analysis, the result is almost all benefit.

I'm a big fan of CO2.  Plants can't exist without it.  If you freeze it and drop it into root beer, you have an awesome holiday drink for kids that makes them all think you're a genius.  But mostly the plant food thing, because my food eats plants, and without plants, my food couldn't be turned into, well, MY FOOD.

Also, asparagus.  I do eat asparagus.  Which also cannot grow without CO2.

And I still want to kick every eco-freak I meet straight in the twig and berries, in the hope that they won't reproduce and spread their stupidity genes.

One of the little joys of living in central Mississippi

Is that I don't know if I'm coming down with some sort of upper respiratory infection, or if it's just my allergies fighting against whatever the hell is blooming now.

I am not a Southern man, no matter how often the Army tries to turn me into one.

Saturday, April 06, 2019

Busy day today

Got lots to do.  Quite a bit of plans coming up for the future that need preparation now.  And of course, the ever-present need for socialization, lest I revert back to banging women on the head with clubs and dragging them back to my cave.  I'm much like a dog in that regard.  If I'm not socialized on a regular basis, I tend to be even less sociable in the future, and since the Mrs. likes to be around people, well....  She doesn't need me snapping and growling at them.  I told her that other people are highly over-rated, but she still likes to be around them, so....

So, off I go.  Enjoy some old-timey music.

And the Catholic Church continues to eat bullet after bullet

Because Jorge Bergolio, the Anti-Pope, continues to stick the barrel down our throat and pull the trigger.

Reports that Pope Francis is planning to appoint the very liberal Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta to serve as the next archbishop of Washington, D.C., are giving many conservative Catholics heartburn. 
Gregory, who would become the seventh archbishop of Washington, is expected to succeed Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who resigned in disgrace last October in the wake of last year’s Pennsylvania grand jury report on sexual abuse in the clergy. In the grand jury's report, Wuerl was accused of helping to cover up the crimes of predatory priests while serving as the bishop of Pittsburgh.

Wilton Gregory is a liberal politician in shepherd's clothing.  He's the fruit of the poison tree.  The fruit that he produces will likewise be poisonous. 

Gregory also worked closely with McCarrick when he was president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops from 2001–2004. During the presidential election year of 2004, McCarrick and Gregory withheld a powerful memorandum that was sent to the U.S. bishops by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The memo was intended to be read at an upcoming bishops' conference in the United States.

That would be known sodomite predator McCarrick. 

In the memo -- which was leaked to the Italian magazine EsspressOnline a week after the conference -- the future Pope Benedict XVI clearly and precisely instructed the bishops to deny Eucharistic Communion to politicians who publicly support and campaign for abortion. Some of the passages appeared to have been drafted specifically with then-Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry in mind. Throughout his long senatorial career, Kerry had always vocally supported and voted in favor of abortion rights.

But McCarrick and Gregory decided to toss that memo in the circular file, because they care more about liberal politics than the souls of church members.  They also care a lot more about having gay sex than about saving souls, but that's par for the course these days with the crowd of bishops who came into seminary in the 70's.

The Catholic Church will continue to disintegrate until these heretics and sodomites are dead and out of power.  That could take decades, because once Gregory is Cardinal of Washington D.C., he gets to appoint bishops all over America.  And again, his fruit will be poisonous. 

St. Thomas Aquinas, pray for us.

Miguel Estrada's Revenge

I really do like this guy.  And Chuck Schumer is a walking piece of dog shit dressed in a cheap suit.




And that's raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacis!



You can't tell generations of white men that they are everything that's wrong in the world, and expect that they won't group up to defend themselves.  To the left, White Men are evilracisthomophobichaternazis, and they've been preaching that sermon for just about my entire adult life.

Hell, the Left has come up with their own hierarchy of who they love the most based on skin color or race or religion or sexuality.  It's called INTERSECTIONALITY.  Muslims rate higher than blacks.  Black muslims rate higher than white muslims.  There's some confusion about whether gays rate higher than muslims, but they'll figure that out once they can determine how many votes each particular side can bring to the table.

But no matter what, white men are at the bottom of their scale. 

You think that doesn't affect how people act?  How people vote?  How people choose to live?

White ethno-nationalist groups exist because we're told that every other nation in the world can choose who gets to live there.  Apparently, the message of "except you white nations" has fallen on deaf ears. Or it that message has just been rejected out of hand.

It's not just that white racism has been growing.  It's that white racism has been growing as a result of whites being increasingly marginalized, and told that we don't deserve to exist.  I grew up in a military household.  I'm still reflexively anti-racist.  But how many of my generation can say that they grew up the way I did?  Very, very few.  The Left has made identity politics their life-blood.  They shouldn't be surprised when the Right decides to play their game.

Say what you will about the most rabid of Trump fans...

They're not worshipping the guy.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke officially launched his candidacy for the Democratic nomination by declaring to Vanity Fair he is "just born to be in it." And his supporters seem to have picked up on the "chosen one" undertones already, with a sign at a Saturday night rally in Austin glorying, "BETO IS OUR CHRIST."

How in the hell can you debate what amounts to these people's RELIGION?

They did the same thing to Obama.  They worshipped the ground he walked on.  Every mumbling stutter that dribbled from his lips like the limp dicks he used to suck for cocaine was treated as if it were the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Maybe there are people out there calling Trump their "Christ".  I haven't seen them.  Trump isn't a religious figure to the people who voted for him.  I've said this before:  Trump is one gigantic middle finger, from the Normal Americans to the Deep State swamp dwellers.  He's not a God, he's a weapon.

Expect a whole shit ton of stupidity in the 2020 race.  Good Lord, will there be stupidity from the Left.  We can see it now.  It's going to get worse.

Need more proof?

Amid her zeal to save the world with the Green New Deal, Rep. ­Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ­ignored residents in her own Bronx back yard. 
“I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district

"I thought AOC would be our savior"  Imagine just how dumb, how stupid, how utterly ignorant and out of touch you have to be, to think that a know-nothing socialist is going to be your savior.  It's slack-jawed retards voting in googly-eyed retards, and the entire country is worse off as a result.

The arrogance of these people....

"Why are Christians so afraid of Subjective Moral Reasoning?"

That's not the arrogance.  That's a question that deserves a good answer, and it gets one at the link.  No, the arrogance in that snotty little brat's statement was when he asked if we were afraid that people would just start raping and pillaging if they didn't have a book to tell them what to do.  He says "I'm not afraid of that, because it's not going to happen."

Say what?  Just how historically illiterate do you have to be to say that?  And the arrogance to say "That's not going to happen" when not only can it happen, it has happened, all over the world, and in our country.

In any case, go watch the video to hear the response to that question.  The person who gives the response is far nicer than I am.

Why I don't give two shits about your college "education"

This utterly clueless bimbo has a degree from Boston University.  A rather well-regarded institution, although with the raging stupidity flowing out of Chaqita Guevera's mouth, that regard has taken a well-deserved hit.




I bet the guy in the background nodding in agreement has a Master's Degree from some Ivy-League place.  And they're both too stupid to add two plus two and come up with four.

Permitting illegal immigration is not compassion

Because there are no victimless crimes, and illegal immigration hurts more people than you can count.

An Encino, TX resident says she lives in fear every day. She sees hundreds of undocumented immigrants attempting to enter her property, adding she feels threatened by criminal organizations surrounding the area. 
"12 young men dressed in black. My husband automatically stopped and they just put a finger to their lips and it's like… You better not say anything, they know what we drive, they know where we live."

Tell me, where is the compassion for the Americans who have to live with the results of illegal aliens and the cartels who direct them, control them, and use them?

Go read the whole report.  We have US Citizens being threatened by Mexican drug cartels, and the Democrats don't care.  They don't care about the women and girls who get raped by the coyotes who are smuggling them  They don't care about the Americans who's land is being trashed.  They don't care about the victims of the cartels on both sides of the border.

So how can they call themselves "compassionate"?

They can't.  It's a lie.

I'm writing this tonight, and posting it in the morning

So that made sense, didn't it?

I spent all day making sausage.  As well as teaching the wife of a co-worker to make sausage.  We made Andouille and Chaurice, and then smoked the Andouille all afternoon.  Once we pulled the Andouille off the grill, we put on the pork bones from the pork shoulders we'd cut up for the sausage, and those have been smoking until 11 PM. 

I got to spend the evening surrounded by friends, eating good food, and having a good time.  And other than a few snide comments about MSNBC, we didn't discuss politics at all.  We talked sports.  Movies. Comedy.  Life in general.  Theology.  Haunted houses.  Exorcisms.  Kids.  Texas vs. Mississippi, especially when it comes to allergies.  And of course, food.

It was an awesome night.

I miss those.  Having that kind of nigh reminded me of a time when politics didn't consume every aspect of our lives.

By the by, the smoked pork bones will be used to make Hoppin' John, red beans and rice, and various other southern dishes.

If there's one thing that I curse the left for doing, is making everything political.  For taking away nights like tonight from everybody. 

Everybody needs a night like I had tonight.  But now we have to make sure we don't invite any Leftists in order to have that kind of night.  So be it.  I'm going to enjoy my life on this earth with good people and good food.  And good drink.  And cigars.  And I'll be damned if I bring some Leftist into my house to ruin it.  That's where I'm at right now.  I want to have a dinner and not talk about the President.  I want to have a dinner

I bet if they showed more stuff like this, our kids would be smarter

I certainly didn't learn this in school.  I had to search it out after I graduated.  But this would be junior high level stuff back when it was put out.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Yep





That about sums it up.

Why Johnny can't Think

Way back in the Medieval times, when I was in high school, I commonly ran up against people who, in a debate, couldn't grasp basic facts.  This apparently wasn't too uncommon for a few folks.  If I were to posit that a tax on income resulted in people deliberately earning less in order to avoid said tax, I was told that I was an idiot, because nobody would do that.

Apparently, all of human nature doesn't count. 

I used to wonder about why so many kids in my school couldn't put figurative two and two together.  Now I know that was a deliberate action, by the Marxist left, to grow not a generation of citizens, but a generation of peasants who couldn't think on their own, and thus require the state to take care of them.  My saving grace was having parents who taught me on their own time, who removed any and all TVs from the house, and who demanded that I read the masters, both modern and ancient.

Today's kids?  Well, they're being taught by my classmates, most of whom are unfit to teach a boy how to take a piss in the woods.



When people say we can't vote our way out of this, they're right.  You can't debate someone who cannot grasp simple logic, and we have multiple generations of people in this country who have been taught NOT to think.

Yet another American killed by illegal aliens

Hey Dave, why do you carry again?  Huh.  Oh yeah.  Because the Federal Government is essentially importing these fucking animals as fast as they can, and shows no signs of stopping.

An illegal alien has been accused of murdering 28-year-old Paige Lane Gomer, an Oklahoma mother of one, in a shooting last week, according to local authorities. 
Ramon Hector Martine Ontiveros, a 33-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, allegedly shotand killed 28-year-old Gomer in a shooting on March 21. Police have said Ontiveros has admitted to shooting Gomer, and the alleged murder is still being investigated.

Bring back public executions.

Russia, Russia, Russia!

How did we get here from there?  If someone wrote a script detailing the level of corruption and evil in the Democrat Party, Hollywood would turn it down and say it wasn't believable.

Millions of Americans have been led to believe that President Trump committed treason, and any day he could be led out of the White House in chains. They wake up every day thinking this could be the day that Mueller gets Trump. These poor souls should be facing a tough reality this weekend. But hold the Xanax, at least for now. The media and Democrat Party have dug themselves so deeply in a hole, they must keep on digging. That’s absolutely terrible for this country, as has been this entire endeavor.

This is just the beginning of how corrupt our government truly is.

As soon as the Clinton campaign realized its misdeeds toward Bernie had been made public, they blamed Russia. They immediately began putting out a narrativethat attempted to say Russia had acted to favor Trump, which included paying Fusion GPS—a notorious propaganda outfit with ties to loads of so-called journalists—to create ties between Trump and Russia. 
Fusion GPS then hired a former British spy, Chris Steele, to boost their credibility. He used a different British guy with ties to the Kremlin, Edward Baumgartner, who employed unknown Russians to write a series of Word documents that alleged Trump-Russia collusion. 
Meanwhile, Clinton stooge Cody Shearer wrote other documents that alleged Trump-Russia collusion, and Clinton stooge Sidney Blumenthal disseminated those documents into the Obama State Department with the help of would-be Clinton administration secretary of state Victoria Nuland. The State Department people then gave those documents to the FBI. 
In short, the Hillary campaign peppered the Obama executive branch with allegations of Trump-Russia collusion. The Obama intelligence apparatus, pushed on by Obama’s Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, was only too happy to run with it. Jim Comey’s FBI then used those Word documents to get a warrant from a secret court to spy on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide, which allowed the FBI to spy on the rival political party’s presidential campaign.



Go read the rest over there.  Not only was the government involved in this entire shit-show, but the media as well, all in a concerted effort to undo the 2016 election.  And crimes were committed.  Yet none of the criminals are facing punishment for their crimes, which is yet another sign that this country is about to rip itself apart.

In other words, being a liberal black pole-smoker means you don't get jail time for your crimes

This is my shocked face.  No, I'm actually shocked, because the Chicago PD pretty much laid out their case, and they are friggin' PISSED right now that Jussie Smollett is walking.  Even Obama loyalist and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel blistered the county for letting Smollett walk.

I'm guessing Smollett had some dirt on someone.  Either that, or someone got PAID.

Hack. Hack. Cough.

So we got some rain here recently.  On the drive to work, I could see the various puddles of POLLEN staining the road. Yellow in some cases, green in others, from the trees that line the road.  All the way to work.

My breathing sucks right now.  Mississippi has got to be the greatest farmland in America, because shit never stops growing here.  You can pull two growing seasons out of the earth if you wish.  But that means that there is never a time when you don't have allergens in the air.  It's pollen from March to November, and the leaf mold from December to February, and then we start all over again.

Have I mentioned that I'm on two different allergy medications, PLUS the nasal lavage?  Yeah.  I keep reminding people here that I am not a Southern Man.

Yeah. It's bad.

One of the commenters at Kim du Toit's place shared these links to photos from NASA Earth Observitory.


Take a gander at Mississippi.  I live in a town right on the Mississippi river.  Yeah.  We're watching the river, and all the local rivers, just keep rising.

We're not panicking.  Yet.

The year of the single-stack?

Insty links to this article about how single-stack pistols are all the rage these days.

Had you asked me a couple of years ago, I would have been all manly-man grunting "Single Stack better be a 1911!  45 ACP all the way!  UG UG UG!"  But after living in the South for a period of time?  Holy moly, folks.  I can't even begin to explain the climate to those who haven't experienced it.  Wait, I can try:  Go into your local gym.  Go into the sauna.  Crank up the heat to at least 90 degrees.  Now dump water on to the rocks until the humidity is 90% or higher.  Do this in your work clothes.  Do this in casual clothing.  And then sit there for 24 hours and tell me just how concealable your pistol is.

My current carry pistol is the Ruger LC9s Pro, with an extra magazine.  That's a total of 15 rounds of hollowpoint 9mm goodness.  And most importantly, that little pistol disappears under a light shirt.  Remember, the name of the game is CONCEALED carry.  Once I move back up North, I'll carry my double-stack 9mm or my 1911 again, when clothing is bulky enough that nobody sees it.  But for right now?  Small pistol good. 

Well, look at that...




As Vox Day points out, Mueller recommended 20 years for Manafort.  But apparently if you're a pedo, Mueller's your guy!

Well, yeah....

Millennials would pick politics over the best lay of their life.

Anglesey’s not alone: Whether red or blue, most millennials would pick their party over the best lay of their life, according to new research. 
The number of millennial men and women who prioritize political party alliance over good sex has skyrocketed since 2016, according to data from OkCupid. The matchmaking company surveyed more than 8 million users, and found that interest in dating someone with similar political beliefs has gone up 165 percent since 2004, while having good sex has decreased as a priority 30 percent.

The best lays are crazier than a shithouse rat.  This is well known.  Nuttier than squirrel turds.  I'm actually happy to see that people take more into consideration than just how good a one-night-stand is going to be.

And let's face it:  liberal women, by and large, are some of the nastiest skanks out walking the earth.  Oh gosh, Sunflower Moonbeam dyed her armpit hair purple and braids her leg hair into a "Impeach Trump" macrame art piece!  Yeah, hard pass on that.  Anyone remember Moldylocks, the Antifa darling who got to express herself by getting knocked the fuck out by a Proud Boy?  She used to look good.  She used to look like a normal, healthy woman that you'd love to take home to meet your parents.  Then she went hard left, and, well....

So yeah, were I a young man on the dating scene, and I found a woman's profile that screamed "IMPEACH TRUMP #THERESISTANCE" I wouldn't give her the time of day.  Why would I willingly put myself in contact with the mentally ill?  The sex might be good, but the various STD's are a definite turn-off.

Well, hot diggity!

Blazing indeed...

Two more Americans killed by illegal aliens who should have been deported

And let's be blunt, these are just two more that are being reported.  There are plenty more people being killed/raped/assaulted/burgled/accosted by illegal aliens every single day in this country that never make the news.

There are plenty of reasons to hate the GOP.  But their complete and total abdication of duty to deal with illegal immigration is pretty much #1 on the list for me, and has been ever since about 2004.  It's not a failure.  Failure implies that they tried and just couldn't do anything.  This is abdication of duty, compiled by their lying about it to their voters for over a decade.

On the Democrat's dashed hopes, and their addiction to their hatred

Once the needle goes in....

An addiction begins to end when the drug is withdrawn, but the addict can and often does substitute another. Democrats have been preparing the new drug, much like the old one: Congressional investigations. And if the Mueller report isn’t released to the public they will say there is something (or perhaps many things) that is being hidden, something important. If it is released to the public they will comb through it, much as they did with Sarah Palin’s garbage, looking for a smoking gun (mixed metaphor, I know) or at least a faint whiff of smoke. No doubt they will find something to feed their habit.

They're not going to stop screaming.  Instead, their screaming is going to ratchet up to previously unheard of levels.

The Trump-Russia Collusion story is confirmed to be bullshit

But we already knew this.

This is a damning page one admission by the Times. Despite the connect-the-dots graphic in its other story, and despite the astonishing, emotion-laden editorial the paper also ran suggesting “We don’t need to read the Mueller report” because we know Trump is guilty, Baker at least began the work of preparing Times readers for a hard question: “Have journalists connected too many dots that do not really add up?” 
The paper was signaling it understood there would now be questions about whether or not news outlets like themselves made a galactic error by betting heavily on a new, politicized approach, trying to be true to “history’s judgment” on top of the hard-enough job of just being true. Worse, in a brutal irony everyone should have seen coming, the press has now handed Trump the mother of campaign issues heading into 2020.

What really needs to be understood is that the Left didn't actually think that Trump colluded with Russia.  They simply wanted to attack Trump and hope that the very accusations of collusion would be enough to remove him from office.  They hoped that the accusation after accusation, parroted by the Democrat Media Complex, would be enough to force the population of America to demand that Trump resign.  Because let's face it - had Trump been a typical GOP cuck, he would have stepped down and apologized profusely for non existent crimes rather than fight back.

But Trump isn't some spineless GOP flunky.

And so the Democrats plowed on pushing a bullshit narrative, that everybody knew was bullshit.

Nothing Trump is accused of from now on by the press will be believed by huge chunks of the population, a group that (perhaps thanks to this story) is now larger than his original base. As Baker notes, a full 50.3% of respondents in a poll conducted this month said they agree with Trump the Mueller probe is a “witch hunt.”

Look for the Democrats to now pivot to attacking any criminal act as small as a parking ticket associated with anyone that might have possibly be in Trump's circle.  This is standard National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party tactics.  Ignore the truth, and keep attacking.  The Walking, Talking Sack of Shit Jerrold Nadler has already signaled that he's going to destroy anyone associated with Trump on any trumped up charges he can manufacture.  It doesn't matter what the truth is, the only think that Slimy Anal Wart Jerrold Nadler cares about is removing Trump from office.

If Trump wins in 2020, expect the rage and bullshit to increase.  Up to 11, even.

And yet, it will continue on

Victor Davis Hanson:  The Coup has failed.....

But what else do they have to run with?  The Democrats have nothing else to run on.  That talking bag of shit Nadler has been yapping about Russia for two years, and now is trying to find anything and everything he can to take down Trump and his family and his friends and his co-workers and anyone who might have worked for him ten years ago and the guy janitor at Trump tower and so on and so forth.  And the rest of the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party is right along with him, because they have NOTHING that appeals to 90% of America, and thus they can only destroy Trump by any means possible.

Yes, the coup failed.  That doesn't mean they've stopped.  THIS coup failed, but the next one is right around the corner.

Music that shaped me early on

The Manhattan Transfer



I sang dozens of the songs they sang, over and over and over...  I'm sure my parents were just about sick of it, but they let me sing them anyway.....

Compare this to the crap being churned out these days...  phaw.

Ichiro has retired



I moved to Seattle in late 2000, and I was in the ballpark for plenty of games in 2001, his first year in the Major Leagues.  Man, he was awesome to watch.

The Mariners showed class.  Ichiro had "partially retired" last year, but the Mariners kept him on so that he could play his last games in Japan.  I regret that he never got to win a World Series, but he's not the first world-class player who never made it, and he won't be the last.

So long, and smooth sailing, Ichiro.

I've said this plenty of times

If you're not at the table, you're on the menu.

Normally I say this in the context of military budgets.  If you're not at the table, i.e. the budgetary planning meetings, your share of the pie is going to get gobbled up.  But RedPillJew has another interpretation:



You can go read his entreaty to American Jews at his website. 

I've been mulling this over a bit in my head for some years now.  American Jews vote overwhelmingly Democrat.  Ben Shapiro has stated quite often that many American Jews consider themselves to be "ethnic", not religious Jews.  So they consider themselves to be a group based on their bloodlines, and never set foot inside a temple.

I can remember the protests against the war in Iraq, where Leftists held banners against war, against the USA, against GW Bush, and most especially against Jews.  Caricatures of Jews as hooked-nose monsters, Jews as blood-sucking vampires, and (laughably) Jews as Nazis.  A photo blogger with the nom de cyber of "Zombie" documented such things, with graphic evidence.  Here's just one small example:





For decades, the Democrat party has been embracing anti-Semitism whole-heartedly, and American Jews keep voting for them. 

There's a big part of me that says "Let them get what they vote for, and let them get it good and hard."  The new Democrat Darlings, Ilhan Omar, Rancid Tlaib, and the de-facto Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Chavez are as anti-Semitic as they come, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

And American Jews vote Democrat by overwhelming margins.

RedPillJew is correct:  Sit at the table or be on the menu.  I just don't think that American Jews, by and large, are willing to understand that.  For all the vaunted Jewish intelligence, they keep voting for people who hate them, and will eventually be run out yet again by uncivilized barbarians hellbent on murder.  And this time, it will be because they refused to see the danger even though they had not only plenty of warning, but an entire political party pleading with them to abandon their head-long rush into annihilation.

Fox News is on the way to becoming yet another Cuck-driven dumpster fire

How in the hell do you hire Donna Brazile, Fox?  How?  Just who the hell do you think is giving you your good ratings?  Do we need yet another DNC plant to lecture us on how we're a bunch of white homophobic nazis who rape women and then stop them from getting abortions?

How in the hell do you hire a woman who gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton and got fired from CNN as a result?  Is Fox news in such dire straits that they need to pick up the cast-offs from a network that is essentially the DNC propaganda organ?  A DNC propaganda organ who fired Brazile for being too in the tank for the Democrats!  Ugh.

Fox News is going to give a masterclass in how to destroy a brand. Those of us who used to consume Fox News Channel cannot even go to Fox Business Network since the bigwigs have threatened to have her on there too. It’s groovy Fox. You don’t want us. We don’t want you either. We will take our eyeballs, our clicks and our ad dollars and go elsewhere. Somewhere we are loved and respected.

Well said, Mrs. Williams.

Might I suggest One America News Network?  They seem to understand that being Democrat-Lite isn't a winning proposition.

Perique

Perique is a type of tobacco made only in Louisiana.  The short story is that they grow the tobacco in one particular location, then process it by marinating it in its own juice.  The end result is a tobacco that is extremely peppery and flavorful.

The Crescent City Cigar Shop has a house blend cigar that is made using Perique tobacco.  It's rather delightful.  I'm enjoying it right now with a good single malt.

Apropos of that, it's rather nice to be home.

Homosexuality in religion

Here's a rather good summation of why SJWs are destroying religion and churches in America.

They don’t want only to be accepted in a congregation–that acceptance is reality throughout the nation–they want everyone to agree with their abolishment of the sin of homosexuality.  Yet even that is not enough.  They want to be universally praised for their courage and virtue in living the very sin they seek to abolish, and they want everyone else to pay for it. 
Those with doctrinal arguments with a given denomination can easily seek another congregation, or another denomination. In so doing, they force nothing on others, they take none of their resources, and their fidelity in following God’s word is between them and God.  But those who seek to transform a congregation, the beliefs of a denomination, or of Christianity, by force, will quickly discover the real meaning of disapproval, and like us all, will have to answer to God. 
This is personal weakness and socialist politics. It’s not wise to try to include God in that.

Any church that openly embraces homosexuality is going to eventually fail.  You cannot claim to be a house of God while simultaneously endorsing the very actions that God has called a sin.   The Episcopal Church threw their lot in with homosexuality, and divorced themselves from God in order to do so.  The Episcopal Church used to have quite a bit of clout in America.  Nowadays, they're spending more to maintain empty churches than they are taking in through tithing.  The Social Justice Warriors love the Episcopal Church now, but that does't translate into people actually going to church.  The love of modern society is ephemeral and meaningless.  The love of God is solid as a rock and unchanging, because God is unchanging.

When you divorce yourself from God in order to embrace modern society, the result is death.  The Methodists just ducked that bullet, but if they don't remain strong they'll suffer the same fate.

The Catholic Church in America is also dying off for much the same reason.  Vatican 2 essentially turned Catholic Churches into protestant ones, and if there's no real difference in how you treat God, people will just....  drift away.  Couple that with an onslaught of effeminate gay priests, and you have a recipe for driving people out of the pews in droves.  Men will not take their families to be lectured to by a lisping, limp-wristed Social Justice Warrior.

It should come as no surprise that the fastest growing areas in the Catholic Church, the ONLY areas that are experiencing growth, are the traditional orders.  Masses in Latin.  Nuns in habits.  Love of God, clearly expressed and modern SJW morals rejected.  There's a lesson there, if anyone cares to learn it.

Oh my....

Shot fired.

UNAUTHORIZED.TV will soon be accessible on over 1000 devices including iOS devices, Android devices, MACs, PCs, streaming media boxes such as Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Nexus Player.

Technofascist shitwads like YouTube and Twitter have outright banned enough people for the simple fact of being conservative that folks are just building their own networks now.  Why post on YouTube when you know that they'll do everything they can to shut you down for your political views?

Good.  Fuck YouTube.

I'm sorry Mr. Fernandez, but we've crossed that Rubicon already

Richard Fernandez writes about the massacre in Christchurch, and attempts to warn foolish people who won't listen:

But perhaps the absolute worst thing politicians can do is respond by collecting guns, imposing hate speech restrictions, and announcing open borders.  In the current atmosphere of distrust toward authority, such actions can destroy the only asset a state faced with ethnic conflict has: the public belief that it is above the fray and won't sell anyone out. That quantity can itself run out and therein lies the danger.

The public belief that the government is above the fray and won't sell anyone out?  I'll pause here for the laughter to die down.

The FBI was aware of Steele's "sources" but still used the dossier to convince a FISA judge to issue a warrant against Trump campaign aide Carter Page.  That the FBI has, to this day, refused to verify the authenticity of the information in the dossier is not surprising.  A document as flawed as this should never have been presented to a FISA court as justification for granting a warrant to spy on Carter Page.  It makes the FBI look ridiculous. 
Many on the left still take the dossier as gospel and refer to it as if it were relevant.  It isn't.  It was a political smear job, paid for by Democrats, that Steele passed on to a former aide to GOP presidential candidate John McCain, who gave it to BuzzFeed, who then posted it. 

The one and only thing the government seems to be good at is screwing over the average American for someone else's benefit.  I don't have any belief that the US Government won't sell me out.  Based on past actions, I have every faith in the world that the US Government will sell us out in a red hot minute the moment it has the opportunity, and it is only the threat of armed resistance that prevents them from doing so immediately. 

Does that seem pessimistic?  Then ask yourself why the US government refuses to stop the flood of illegal immigrants into this country despite there being an overwhelming percentage of the population that wants our immigration laws enforced.

Because the US Government doesn't give a shit about you, you're nothing but an inconvenience.  They won't have to deal with the end results of illegal criminals flooding THEIR communities.  They won't have to deal with the crime and the drugs and the deaths and the kidnappings and the sex trafficking.

Wait - they probably WANT the sex trafficking, because too many of them are degenerate perverts.  If they allow the illegal aliens to bring their child sex slaves into America then they can satisfy their lusts here at home instead of having to fly to the Dominican Republic.  Right, Senator Menendez from New Jersey?

The people currently infesting Washington D.C. don't want to live with you, they want to rule over you.  And with that as their goal, they will abandon you to the wolves at the first opportunity.  They'll screw you over in a heartbeat and walk away smiling.  And as has been proven by the 2016 election, the government is not above the fray, they are not looking out for the country's best interests, and they are not above abusing their power in pursuit of a political goal.  In fact, they absolutely DO abuse their power for political goals, and will do so again.

This is getting to be a St. Patrick's Day tradition




I don't like all the stuff the Celtic Women do, and lord knows they've done enough over-produced schlock.  But this, just four voices, no instruments, pure harmony, unbelievable tune....

It still gives me shivers up my spine every time I hear it.

"But Dave, how do you know it's really Irish?"  Because I can't think of any other nation that would sing about a lover kneeling and praying the Ave Maria over his dear love's grave, and make it sound as sweet.
